This Guy I Saw Sitting in a Car

by Holly Day

truck sm
He was parked in the lot at Thrifty’s Drug buck naked save for
A big white cowboy hat and a pair of dark sunglasses he was
Holding onto his erect penis and grinning proudly and happily like his penis
Was a prize he had won as a bowling trophy or at a carnival ring-toss
Or like it was something a teacher had given him for being
A real good boy in school instead of a gold star or one of those
Phony certificates of accomplishments that can be traded in
For a cheeseburger at McDonald’s with the purchase of a
Large drink.
